DID YOU KNOW?
The first digital camera released back in 1975? Steve Sasson, an engineer at Kodak at the time was the one responsible for inventing it. Descriptions for such devices came much earlier still. Eugene F. Lally, from Jet Propulsion Laboratory first described it. It was on how to create still digital photos using a mosaic photosensor. Willis Adcock, an employee from Texas Instruments patented a film-less camera in 1972. No prototype ever made it to the public until Steve Sasson made one year later. You'd think that Steve Sasson's camera produced the first digital image, wouldn't you? It was back in the 1950s that the first digital image came into existence. The Natural Bureau of Standards was the only place that had a programmable computer at the time. A scientist, Russell Kirsch went and assembled a crude image scanner. It would convert a photo into binary code. The resulting image was a 176x176 pixel image of his infant son.
Fast forward to 1988, Fuji demoed the DS-1p in Germany. It was the first consumer digital camera that came out in the market. Nowadays, DSLRs and smartphone cameras are our main photo capture devices. With the hundreds and thousands of images we have taken, we'll need something to view them on. This is where image viewers became popular. They allowed us to compile our images and view and sort them in one place. The best image viewers offer some extra features. Things like basic editing tools like cropping and resizing. It started out with PCs but photo gallery apps are now available for smartphones as well.
